    New Mexico Mutual is an excellent company to work for. The Executive team is hard working and very approachable. They offer a great one team environment and care about their employees. My teams at New Mexico were wonderful and some of the best people I've ever worked with in the industry. The colleagues I worked with were very helpful and hard working. Kellie Mixon is one of the best CEO's in New Mexico. I would not have left had it not been for family circumstances.

    No cons, an excellent company.
